The best…tablets for kids

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, LeapFrog LeapPad Ultra, and more

Samsung Galaxy Tab 3
This sturdy Samsung pairs a class-best screen with a “whopping” 9.3 hours of battery life. Though it enables parents to control a child’s access to the game apps, it could use more guards on Internet use.
